Texas Theatre and Dance presents Rude Mechs' The Method Gun
A play about the ecstasy and excesses of performing, the dangers of public intimacy and the incompatibility of truth on stage and sanity in real life, Rude Mechs’ widely acclaimed work returns to Austin.
The Method Gun explores the life and techniques of Stella Burden, actor-training guru of the 1960s and '70s, whose sudden emigration to South America still haunts her most fervent followers. Burden’s training technique, The Approach (often referred to as “the most dangerous acting technique in the world”), fused Western acting methods with risk-based rituals in order to infuse even the smallest role with sex, death and violence.
The Method Gun contains adult content, including full frontal male nudity.
